|Eating Escargot in an open air cafe|
Today, we'll get to see some of their Paris exploits - like eating Escargot. Yes, those are snails! (See above) World traveler that I am, I have yet to get up the nerve to try eating those. About this experience Glenn said, "Delicious!"
So, was he telling the truth, or was it just an evil ploy to get others to try them? What do you think? Then again, anything that's chock full of garlic can't be all bad!

Um... well, it was nice to dream for a few minutes, huh, Angie?

"Just when a wave of homesickness started to hit," Glenn writes, "A little graffiti, a Parisian boy in a Kobe jersey, and some questionable smells made this Angeleno feel right at home."
I love that. Glenn, you are so funny.
Here they are. First, the boy in the Lakers' Jersey:

You'll just have to imagine the "questionable smells" yourself. The 'scratch and sniff' technology for blogs hasn't been perfected yet. (Thank goodness) Ha!

Glenn said he and his wife appreciated the props to the Allied Forces when they read the names of the subway stops:
|The subway posts route maps along the top of each subway car.|
These clearly show what line you are on and what the stops are

Just to make things interesting, a vintage French car rolled on by! Those old French-made Citroëns were remarkable cars. You rarely see them in the U.S.
